There's always so much to learn. It stretches on forever, so sometimes it can get pretty disappointing when you realise that you're never going to get "there", wherever that is. Regardless, I must keep putting one foot in front of the other (I hear the soundtrack from Revenge of the Nerds playing in my head, for some reason).
Here are some links I've found or been directed to by friends, peers or people I follow creepily online. I put them here for anyone's benefit, but also mine, since occasionally I do lose links to such resources, and they often prove handy when I'm teaching.

I'm a big fan of anything that comes out of Brad Bird's mouth. With the possible exception of chewed food, but I'd probably treasure even that!

Tracy Butler's work is so good it makes me cry. She also did an expression tutorial which is priceless, here: http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=333

Mark Kennedy has a good idea to thumbnail 'board an existing film sequence to get to grips with how a sequence can be effectively constructed. I must try this, as my storyboarding ability is uber-basic.
